Picking wild raspberries and cherries

raspberries July 17 (2)

I spent the morning picking wild raspberries. There was not much left of our raspberry canes on our main allotment after the goats managed to get to them so the wild crop is filling the gap. This afternoon, I also picked a bucket of cherries from trees planted at a local woodland decades ago by Gateshead Council. It is very late for cherries which are normally ripened in June and eaten by wood pigeons. This year the cherries are late. And there are still plenty more to pick.

It took less than an hour to pick this lot.
